Sec. § 78.211
Consideration for shares: Authority of board of directors; effect of receipt; corporate action pending receipt in future.


The board of directors may authorize shares to be issued for consideration consisting of any tangible or intangible property or benefit to the corporation, including, but not limited to, cash, promissory notes, services performed, contracts for services to be performed or other securities of the corporation. The nature and amount of such consideration may be made dependent upon a formula approved by the board of directors or upon any fact or event which may be ascertained outside the articles of incorporation or the resolution providing for the issuance of the shares adopted by the board of directors if the manner in which a fact or event may operate upon the nature and amount of the consideration is stated in the articles of incorporation or the resolution. The judgment of the board of directors as to the consideration received for the shares issued is conclusive in the absence of actual fraud in the transaction.


When the corporation receives the consideration for which the board of directors authorized the issuance of shares, the shares issued therefor are fully paid. Shares that are issued are outstanding shares unless such shares are treasury shares.


The corporation may place in escrow shares issued for a contract for future services or benefits or a promissory note, or make any other arrangements to restrict the transfer of the shares. The corporation may credit distributions made for the shares against their purchase price, until the services are performed, the benefits are received or the promissory note is paid. If the services are not performed, the benefits are not received or the promissory note is not paid, the shares escrowed or restricted and the distributions credited may be cancelled in whole or in part.


For the purposes of this section, “benefit to the corporation” includes, without limitation, the authorization of the issuance of shares to up to 100 persons without consideration for the sole purpose of qualifying the corporation as a real estate investment trust pursuant to 26 U.S.C. §§ 856 et seq., as amended, or any successor provision, and any regulations adopted pursuant thereto.
